CIOs and their senior leadership teams know that the existing model of backup is consuming them with day-to-day tactical problems. Research confirms that this experience is widespread and indicates that it will lead to major change in the next two years.

Gartner reports that by 2013:

  • At least 30 percent of organizations will have changed their primary backup vendor due to frustration over cost, complexity, or capability.
  • Fifty percent of midsize organizations will have implemented tiered recovery architectures.
  • More than 75 percent of large enterprises will have made similar changes to eliminate their outdated and burdensome backup windows.

As the backup problem becomes acute and the digital universe expands, the IT leaders in charge of managing that universe are rapidly moving to disk-based data protection. That reality is the catalyst behind FalconStor Virtual Tape Library (VTL), as it provides the crucial first step in addressing data growth and cost containment, creating a bridge to next-generation business continuity and cloud-based solutions.

To solve the daunting backup challenges presented by virtualization and skyrocketing data growth, business need to:

  • Augment existing tape infrastructure through a VTL solution or disk-to-disk (D2D) data protection without changing existing backup processes.
  • Eliminate the backup window with backup acceleration.
  • Control growth with data deduplication.
  • Gain immediate visibility on job status, performance, and capacity utilization to ensure the highest WAN efficiency and storage utilization.

CIOs need a cost-effective way to transform the data center to meet the above requirements. These IT leaders see that the traditional backup window – the set time every day when an organization could stop working and back its data – no longer exists in our global economy. Furthermore, data requirements in the next decade are expected to equal 35.2 million petabytes. Accommodating that impending data burden must start now.
